I simply must tell you what the Daddy-o's been up to these days.
Among many other things, they're working on a massive kitchen reno. And while I'll definitely get into all a that some other time, I want to tell you about this awesomesauce project you see here.
Picture it: Sicily, 1920. Er, I mean, picture it: the daddy-o talks about big plans for a new kitchen island:
"It will be on wheels, so you can move it out of the way. The whole entire top will be a lazy susan. And the sides will have drawers and pull-out seats for all the grandkids."*
*not a direct quote.
I'll be honest with you-- I thought the daddy-o's plans were unattainable.
Thought they were too grandiose, and I thought he'd give up and go with something simpler. 'Cause I know I would.
Daddy-o, I'm sorry for underestimating you. It won't happen again.
I want you to know that this entire thing was paneled and detailed with "the shaper", all done by the Daddy-o.
As far as I know. I'm not gonna bet on that or anything.
And here we are with a beautiful dark stain and 4,508 coats of poly.
Also, your gay-rage floor is looking more like mine every day, Dad.
So? Ready for a little look-see of how this kitchen island comes alive?
(Ee-rrr-eerrr-rr; that's the Transformer transforming sound effect)
Voila. Do you see this? Every side pulls out to make a bench strong enough to hold two grandchildren. Each. They have their own little table. On each end.
See it inside? Sure.
Huge, roomy drawers-- I swears all the dishes I own could fit in here.
And the top? Just like he said. The entire working space lays on casters and can be spun a full 360°.
One last thing.
Look down. Down, down down. . . there. See underneath? Another entire lazy susan is under the whole thing for yet more storage.
So all that's left to say is,
Where can I get one??
